"So I've been really trying to navigate that in quarantine and be the cleanest I've been in a really long time. I haven't been drinking alcohol, which is something I enjoy but because of this pact with my mother I've not been drinking alcohol.
"So these past few days, I've noticed a correlation between drinking alcohol, abusing food and feeling really bad about myself - which is A, B and C. But I will say that, f**k me, sugar is fun!"
Ayda - who has children Teddy, seven, Charlton, five, Colette, 20 months, and Beau, three months, with her husband - admitted she now feels bad when she eats bad foods, and she's used lockdown to balance things out.
She added: "I feel awful! That's the thing, the past four days - I've been really good in quarantine.
"I know this dark side of myself when I eat these things, there's just a Loch Ness Monster that comes out.
I've been really good, because I knew that part of my mental health in this quarantine - as we kind of found a rhythm here - was to not fall into these mental traps where I feel so rubbish and dark.
"I have a gut thing and all sorts of reasons, I had diabetes in my pregnancies. I should not be eating sugar, it's just not what I should be eating."
